Believe in Yourself. Nobody Else Will.This last 6 months saw the turn around of all the people in my life (as in everyone) asking me to quit art and focus on something else. I no longer receive constant suggestions of other careers that I should pursue. I'm sure many of you have had awkward conversations with strangers or elderly people about your desire to become an artist. I had one today (she told me art was not a feasible career). Only now my belief in myself is at 100% so that person walked away believing in me as well.Believe in Yourself. Nobody Else Will.11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I could go on about my personal journey and about how butthurt I was that people weren't acknowledging the work that I was doing; the sacrifice that I was making, but most of you can relate as well. I actually developed quite an ego. A feeling that I was better than all of them, and that they were just ignorant assholes. Was that productive? I'm not sure. Would it be productive now that I'm entering galleries and doing shows (schedule coming soon)? FUCK NO!
Ultimately one of the best things I heard as

Now that you’ve joined PMD-E, welcome! What should you do aside from reading the FAQ? You should decide whether or not you’d like to participate via art or writing, as each one requires you to fill out a different application.
The art application is here, and the writing application is here. You would do well to use a program a bit more advanced than MSPaint to edit the art application, such as GIMP, Photoshop, Paint Tool SAI, etc.

Don't get playedAlright, so there was a recent 'happening' in the dA forums concerning a commission offer made by someone with the starting price of $30. The piece they were asking for was supposedly a really highly detailed piece, large resolution, and basically something you'd spend (on the low end of the market) no less than $250.00 on.Don't get played1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Now, from here on out this may be purely opinion and because my participation in the industry has only been for about 10 years (as in being paid for my work) I may not be the best person to speak on this matter. However, I have to say something, if only to put my own opinions on the matter out there.
15 years ago I got my first commission. It was a full colour realism portrait for someone of their dog and I offered to do it for $5.00 using traditional media.
They took up the offer and it took me about a week of working on and off to finish their image. At the time I wasn't anywhere near being sure of my skills even though I'd been drawing comprehensively

Based on Melissa de la Cruz's New York Times best-selling novel, Witches of East End centers on the Beauchamp family, where in season one sisters Freya and Ingrid discovered they are witches with ancient magical powers. With the help of their mother Joanna and Aunt Wendy, they learned how to cultivate their craft and work together to defeat unearthly enemies seeking revenge on their family, while keeping their abilities a secret from the town.
This season, with the portal to Asgard open, what comes through will forever change the lives of the Beauchamps. Darkness surrounds East End as a new stranger arrives. Joanna is still weak with poison in her blood as the Beauchamps search desperately for a cure. With the death of Penelope, Killian and Dash's warlock powers return. #DarknessIsRising

The Last Piece Standing (2005)And here it is as promised. I had stated I would release our Mako Pictures on YouTube and for Free 8 years after they had been initially released and completed. THE LAST PIECE STANDING was our 2nd live action short movie (35 min). It was a challenging shoot - but I think the end results were pretty great. I directed, edited and co-wrote the movie. I was also lucky enough to have GRYF collaborate with me and create the actual TRANSFORMATION scene. This was my favorite TF TG thing I had ever done - until PARADOX ALICE. And many have told me TLPS is one of their favs of mine. I hope you enjoy. There are a couple censored parts due to YouTube - but it's better than nothing.The Last Piece Standing (2005)1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Various Vivillon *UPDATE! 8/14*(Title is meant to sound like the title for a ViZ English chapter of the Pokemon Adventures/Special manga)Various Vivillon *UPDATE! 8/14*8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Ever since one of the most recent episodes of Pokemon X and Y that aired while I was at Anime Detour, I decided that I really wanted a Vivillon. (it was the "Pokemon of the Day" for the episode) Sadly, based on my location, I was stuck with the Modern Pattern, one of the most boring, in my opinion (Red and blue with white.... VERY primary....) so I began to capture Scatterbug and evolve them to Vivillon to put on the GTS for trade with the hopes of getting at least one of three patterns: Elegant Pattern (purple), Sun Pattern (Yellow with Pink) or Meadow Pattern (Pink).
In the beginning, I didn't seem to have much luck and even had to take my first Vivillon down and then re-offer it before I finally got someone to trade but after this I began to have much more luck. During this process, I also noticed that if you happen to get a Pokemon from a different language version you are the
